The inaugural committee, which Senator Ademola Adeleke appointed to oversee the upcoming swearing-in ceremony and all associated festivities, has provided a summary of the program for the inaugural ceremony ahead of November 27, 2022.
Adeleke would be the second member of his family to hold the position of chief executive of the state, making him the sixth civilian governor of Osun state.
Chairman of the committee, Rev. Bunmi Jenyo, submitted during a press conference he presided over in Osogbo on Sunday night.
He accused Governor Gboyega Oyetola administration of not cooperating with the Adeleke’s transition committee.
‘History, time and records would not forget the vindictive, embittered and uncooperative behaviour of the outgoing government towards a seamless transition from the ruling APC to the incoming PDP government. In spite of the above, a week-long event has been scheduled to usher in the people’s government in Osun state’ he said.
Jenyo also gave an overview of the schedule of events.
‘As strong believers in the power and grace of God, the activities will be preceded by an interfaith prayer service while a Public Lecture titled ‘LIGHT UPON OSUN’ will also be delivered by Emeritus Archbishop Lawrence Sanda Ayoladigbolu .
While the week-long event will be rounded off with a Jumat Service and Inauguration Thanksgiving Church Service, other swearing-in programmes include Novelty Football Match and ‘Inauguration Ball’, sponsored by friends of His Excellency, among others’ he submitted.
He also commented on what an Adeleke administration represents.
“It promises to be a fulfilling new dawn of a renewed hope, happiness and prosperity of the state as Sen. Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke’s five-point agenda is all-encompassing to drive the wellbeing and prosperity of the people.
“Adequate provision for workers’ welfare, boosting State economy by Business Partnering and support for SMEs and Osun funds serving Osun people through grown infrastructure policy are key impetus towards unrivalled and rapid development.
“In the same vein, people-focused social policy through skill- based education, affordable health care, state security and social security support as well as agro-based industrialization for wealth and job creation for young people and women, will in no small measure, transform our dear state from poverty into accelerated development and even delivery of democracy dividends to all and sundry” he added
